, larry, and you can't tax an economy in the prosperity period. >> look, ideally you would say okay, we're going to freeze government spending at this level and that would mean over time it is going to fall as a percentage of the economy, but you can't ever get congress to do that, right? so it always ends up being something very harsh to get things done. and so this is the consequence that you have to face. at least in the short term. that you're going to have a short-term hit to gdp. but in the long run, the numbers are going to be better for the united states. >> most of that stuff is transfer payments. >> agreed. >> it will not even affect gdp. defense purchases do affect gdp. but to america since nobody ever wants to cut spending -- >> you got to cut somewhere. >> and i would do it right now. >> and it will only happen during bad times, larry. it will never happen during good times. we see that over and over again, when the economy is going gang busters, the government just chooses to spend more. it's in its nature. you have to do it when it's tough. >> lower spending means a stron

the reduction of tax loopholes. >> they recognize that the sequester is a bad idea, but what they suggested is that the only way to replace it now is for us to cut social security, cut medicare, and not close a single loophole, not raise any additional revenue from the wealthiest americans or corporations that have a lot of lawyers and accountants who are able to maneuver and manage and work and game the system. and i have to tell you, if that's an argument that they want to have before the court of public opinion, that is an argument i'm more than willing to engage in. >> joining me now is nobel prize winning economist paul krugman. he's a professor of economics at princeton university and author of the book, "end this depression now" which is now available in paperback. professor krugman, you know what i do, i take notes. i'm going to be over here taking notes. i want to get your reaction to what the president said today about his eagerness for a big deal with republicans and what are the possibilities there? >> well, okay. i believe there is no possibility. >> exactly what i thought. >>
too high taxes and if we would just cut that spending and we would have that big recovery, if that is your theory, and it is pretty much the major theory of the political party this week, then you had a bad week. we got two pieces of bad news, one was bad, one good. one was the economy shrunk in the first quarter of 2012. that is the bad news, the other is that the economy added 157,000 jobs in january. but, and this is actually even more important, it added 127,000 more jobs than we thought in november and december. so altogether, today's jobs report added more than 280,000 jobs. 280,000 to the economy. that is pretty good. but it was what those reports said about the debate we are having in washington that was really interesting. when we measure economic growth, we're not measuring all that many things. it is only four main things, at least in category, there is consumer spending, what you and i buy. there is investment, so factoring in getting a new machine, that was very slightly down. there is trade, the stuff we export, minus the stuff we import. that is a bit down.

instability now? >> the question is, what's the truth? we'll see rajoy's tax documents come out later this week. there is clearly a problem here. we have one senior member of the party and the significant investigation. if rajoy is removed, what is the alternative? would we go into a general election and would that alter the economic positions that spain finds itself in? some will argue it would because they don't -- take it on board, introduce the external controls and if you like wrap up the situation. so there's a bull argument within the bear argument. >> where do you fall on that spectrum? >> i think it's going to be business as usual from a political point of view. >> and do you like your investments here? >> yes, i do. >> at what point do you start to take profit? >> i think the credit markets are telling you that. i think it's beginning to say a run for the spanish bull market which could go further, but it's not the same in the last three or four months. >> there's a ten year, 5.31%. are you sticking with it until it goes below five? >> technically, if you hold rates where th
against tax increases and all the rest of it, if you are a major political party, dick luger is a first round draft pick for you. he is the kind of guy you want in the senate seat. you want him in the senate seat because he does a very important thing, he does not lose senate elections. but in 2012, something really unexpected happened. and dick luger lost the seat. but he didn't lose it to a democrat. he lost in a primary to this guy. >> i think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that got intended to happen. >> that is richard mourdock, the tea party anti-establishment candidate. he had endorsements from americans for prosperity, the national right to life association, he is the republican who knocked dick luger out in the primary, and also lost the 2012 senate race in indiana. he is part of why despite the democrats defending the seat, increased their majority by two seats. over the past couple of things this kind of thing happened to republicans an awful lot. the establishment has been getting routed by the tea party. and many have not foug
the deepwater horizon spill on purpose. >> using the crisis of this oil spill to try to promote his energy tax. and i've had numerous people all over the district question whether his poor response to this oil spill was purposeful so that he could promote his energy tax. i don't know. >> i don't know. maybe he is just letting that oil spill for political purposes, because he is a nazi and a marxist. who could know? the same congressman decided during the state of the union address in 2011 that he would not attend the speech in congress, but rather he would troll the speech on twitter. quote, you don't believe in the constitution, mr. president. you believe in socialism. that's what he was tweeting during the state of the union. he has declared nancy pelosi a domestic enemy against whom he is sworn to protect the nation. he has said that president obama is part of a socialistic elite planning to declare martial law. and he has said that the president may use the excuse of a flu pandemic to declare a martial law. he said, quote, we've seen that historically. guess how this gentleman feels about
it admiringly, he is about winning, not about policies, he believes the tax rate should be whatever it is in the tax rate in the campaign. he is getting attacked by the tea party side. he is trying to attack the so-called reasonable republicans against the nuts, rove was just attacking hannity, listen to this. >> the group that went out with the e-mails and fundraising entities, they get into the pocket of the person who owns the website or the political action committee. i am a volunteer, i don't take a dime from crossroads. >> richard, this is the fascinating current civil war in republican world, rove versus the tea party. >> i think he has done pretty well being a political consultant. i am going to be skeptical, even if he was sitting in what looked like the lobby of the holiday inn, this is a fascinating debate. this is what a party looks like when it has gone to an extreme, people recognize it does not work and they're trying to attack back. for the president, the white house and democrats, in general, that offers up a whole range of opportunities that didn't exist before. wh
these with more targeted cuts and tax hikes support goes up only 3 points. opposition goes up 12 points. larry, i think what's happening here is most americans realize that this is not the huge issue that some in washington are making it out to be. 58% know no spending cuts just really a reduction in growth. >> well, i think that's right, actually. they're pretty smart. scott, i know you polled on the size of government and spending for a long time. but just going through your web site today, 68%, 68% believe cutting spending is the best way to help the economy. now, that runs so counter to what both democrats and republicans in washington say. i'm the only guy that argues that. i learned it from milton freedman. lower spending, limit government, you'll help the economy. you're saying two-thirds of the public understands that. >> that's right. and this is something that whether it was in the clinton years or bush years or now the obama years, our polling consistently find people think if you cut government spending it's good for the economy. they haven't had anybody in washington articulating tha
